I spent this past weekend in Capitola, CA — a cute, ocean town of surfers, shoppers and sun-seekers.  Today, your writing prompt is to write about the beach.  Use this setting as the backdrop for your practice.  Is there a dialogue happening in one of these houses?  A romance between the two on the shore?  Perhaps a mystery that evolved the night before.

Write for fifteen minutes. When your time is up, post your practice in the comments section. Please be sure to offer feedback to your fellow writers as well!
